My Problem

cracked screen

My Fix

went ok

My Advice

replace the screws on the back of the replacement screen with the original screws just in case the new ones don't fit in the casing

Carlos Castro Neves's Story Photo #861369

My Problem

Battery wear was already at 30% according to the Battery Life app, and a replacement seemed the only way to go.

My Fix

Got myself the Replacement Kit from iFixit, and used both the video and the pic tutorial do do it step by step.

Removing the adhesive strips were indeed the hardest part, as both left and right broke off early. I then used a hairdryer to melt away the strips, but it was still gruesome to remove the battery.

After installing the new one and reassembling the phone, when I turned it on half the screen was black. I panicked! But then opened it again and checked all the cables. They weren't perfectly connected! Re-did it and now it is perfect. Battery Life app seems to think so as well!

My Advice

Adhesive strips were a pain. And carefully check all cables, firmly pressing them down to assure they're connected.

My Problem

Sapphire glass cover was broken, when I was on a trail, in allergy season, you know..

My Fix

Got repaired... the "original" replacement from ebay seems oil friendly. Now I have to clean the lens more often.

My Advice

I have read other guides, before I began the replacement and open the iPhone for the first time.

- the best tool to open the panel (of iPhone 6!!!) is simply a suction cup. You'll need the plastic tools to pry.

- As a mechanical engineer, the bracket (soft metal) is pressed with the lens (hard metal, maybe brass?). So if it's your first time to change the lens, forget about prying the lens from the back out without opening the phone or get the bracket/frame (which keeps the distance from the camera sensor to the sapphire glass cover) out without breaking it. It's not possible. So order a new bracket together with the lens.

You'll need to glue the lens after replacement, because you are not going to press the bracket to the lens like in the workshop. Choose UV glue or PVC glue, which could be easily dissembled next time. After all, keep everything clean. Put everything back. :)

My Problem

My home button fell down and the power button didn't work.

My Fix

It went all really well, the tutorial is very good, thanks iFixit!I took my time, took it step by step and I did it. I started first with the home button replacement and then with the audio cable and power button. However, when I started back my phone I've noticed that I had no wifi signal strength only my phone was very close to the router. I've opened it again and I saw that the wifi antenna was unplugged from the motherboard. I've plugged it back on the motherboard and it works perfectly.

My Advice

My advice would be: be organized, organize all the screws and parts. And finally, don't hurry, take your time.

My Problem

Battery had been draining very quickly and phone would die randomly for months (after replacing the screen last fall.) A week or so back the battery began to swell and had pushed the screen out quite a bit on the left side of the phone. Decided it was time to try something.

My Fix

I've replaced screens on a few Iphones (including this one) so I'm pretty familiar with the innards of these phones. This repair was fairly simple all the way around. The adhesive strips came off with minimum pressure and putting the new ones on didn't pose a big problem. All in all I'd rate this as easy.

My Advice

The repair guide (along with the separate repair guide for the adhesive strip install) is pretty thorough and provides a great walk through.

My Problem

We had 2 iPhone 5's that were getting less than 3 hours with a full charge. Figured we needed to replace them but my nephew said he had used iFixIt's battery replacement without a hitch. If he could do it we figured we could too.

My Fix

We just watched the video. Monkey see, monkey do. It was a snap. Phones now get a full day with power to spare.

My Advice

The one phone's display came off all of a sudden. Be careful. That was a panic moment but it was all good.

My Problem

Iphone drained battery had to repair, but didnt have tools... Lost em

My Fix

Easy fix just waited for shipping

My Advice

Beready for a long but worthwhile wait for shipping, mine didnt have tracking but was told earlier on that if have to wait 2-7 weeks for it to come

My Problem

My Iphone 5s developed a microphone issue after a few months of use. I couldn't be heard when making a phone call unless I used my speakerphone. I tried dealing with my cellphone carrier on a repair or replacement as it was under warranty. They sent me a "like new" replacement however this "new" phone had more problems then my original. They said they had to work out the replacement phone issues with Apple Care next, otherwise there is nothing else they can do for me. To make a long story short, I told them to pound sand and returned the replacement phone and switched back to my iPhone 4s for the time being. One day I decided I really want to get back to my 5s so I looked into repairing it and found this website.

My Fix

The repair went pretty well. The step by step guide was a big help, wouldn't have tried it without it. The guide was missing a couple steps at the end of the tear down however. There are two more parts that need to be removed from the original lightning connector and headphone jack assembly. There is a small bracket that the home button connection is glued to that has to be removed and installed on the replacement, and the microphone has a small rubber boot around it that has to removed and installed over the replacement microphone. Likely through my research another reviewer point this out so I didn't miss it. Otherwise the repair went just fine with the guide. I was a little mad that the required flat headed screwdriver was mentioned in the guide but not included in the required tools list. I was able to make a screwdriver I had work but I would have liked to have the right size for the job. The only mistakes I had were I got a connector that was next to the battery stuck under the logic board when I was reassembling and didn't notice until I had the board all screwed down. So I had to removed the logic board twice but likely there was no damage. I also had a hard time getting the home button reconnected as the small amount of adhesive wouldn't stick after being removed from the original connector. And I couldn't for the life of me get the securing clip for the home button connection to hook on to the metal hooks on the backside of the connector. I could only snap it in the front which with a little pull pops it out. I spent a good hour trying to hook this clip and ended up just snapping it in the front and putting the phone back together. Not too worried as everything is pretty tight in the phone and its not coming apart again unless something else dies. Overall, I'm glad I decided to purchased the parts and tools and make the repair. Phone is working just like new now.

My Advice

My advice would to purchase all the required tools mentioned in the guide including the flat head screwdriver (2.5mm?). The screws are UNBELIEVABLY small and need these designed magnetic screwdrivers to make it work. Also you will be wise to lay out the steps requiring removal of parts and screws on a piece of paper with some clear or white tape to stick the small parts to so you don't lose them during the repair. Also helps you lay out the screws in order so you don't mix them up when it comes time to reassemble. The website sells a magnetic white board for this purchase if you are only doing the one repair then so some paper and tape work just fine. Also I would advise to just take your time and don't force anything. It took me probably 5 hours from start to finish with 1 hour wasted with trying to hook that clip securing the home button connection. The only thing I wished I had known before I did the repair was about needing the flat head screwdriver, partly my fault as it was mentioned in the guide but wasn't in the tools list so I didn't purchase it, next time I will buy it.

My Problem

Whenever I received a call or tried use my phone when my battery life was approximately 50%, the phone would immediately die. After plugging my phone into a charger (on several occasions) I noticed my battery life was at 0%, from 50% to 0% every time.

My Fix

The repair went great thanks to the video on IFIXIT. Problem solved!

My Advice

Thanks for the help!

My Problem

My speakerphone stopped working a few weeks ago.

My Fix

It went smoother than I expected. I found out that prior repairs had not been done properly, which makes me question even allowing third party places to fix my device. After a few attempts I realized I had found the lost screw within my iphone. I managed to complete the repair within 20 minutes.

My Advice

take your time and don't worry too much.
